This is lifted straight from this month's Mercedes Enthusiast (
www.mercedesenthusiast.co.uk ) Magazine:
Those trying to track down obscure items for 1960s, '70s and '80s
Mercedes might find it worthwhile to contact Richard Miles, who is
closing his Mercedes repair business and getting rid of a huge stock
of factory parts, mostly used.
The R J Miles Engineering premisis in Wandsworth, South London
contains a wealth of hard to obtain parts, from bodywork panels for
'60s Fintails and 220/300s to assorted engines and gear boxes. There
are plenty of grilles, hubcaps and steering-wheels for various models,
and lots of smaller parts, including for example the extremely rare
parts that make up the hydraulic window lift system for the 1960s 600
But you'll have to hurry, because Miles is closing soon, and although
he plans to move a proportion of the stock out and catalogue it for
future on-line sale, what remains unsold may end up being sold by
weight at the scrapyard.
He also has about 10 complete Mercs for sale, mainly running and
non-running W123 estates, but there's also a 450SEL 6.9, 560SEC and a
Ponton. Call him on 07789 831311."
I am not connected in any way with this company, nor have I traded
with them. I just read this in the mag and thought it may prove useful
to those of you trying to track down parts.
